About FMC Schoalrships
We are deeply grateful to members of ACDA-MN and other supporters of choral music whose faithful giving has allowed us to invest in the choral life of Minnesota through the FMC Endowment Fund.
ACDA-MN’s FMC Endowment Fund Committee awards scholarships annually to ACDA-MN members to attend ACDA regional and national conferences, the Summer Dialogue professional development conference, and graduate school. Every three years and ACDA-MN member is awarded a scholarship to attend the World Symposium on Choral Music.
In addition, we award the Alice T. Larsen Memorial Scholarship to an ACDA-MN woman conductor who is pursuing a graduate degree in choral conducting or music education. Further, we provide need-based financial support for students of ACDA-MN members who are selected for the ACDA-MN state honor choir program each year.
Since 1997, 451 Minnesota choral directors and collegiate members have been the recipients of $254,763 in scholarship awards. We are pleased that the following scholarships have been awarded to ACDA-MN members or their students:
